Ah. The government isn’t the only place where I can find examples of the power of corporate money. The University of Minnesota had a rough go with the way they squashed a pretty innocuous film about the impact of Big Agriculture on the Mississippi River. I explain the situation to my unborn grandchildren.
Hey! It’s my 60th birthday today AND this is the 60th Geezercast. How ’bout that? This one is really short — just a 5 minute intro to a new tune that I built to learn about “slicing” — a musical technique that Robert Perry (son of Marcie’s cousin Joan Perry) taught me about when he came to visit a month or so ago.
Yep. Got all the hardware troubles fixed — just in time for a new crop of economic troubles to GeezerCast about. Topics include weird US stock-market gyrations, weird Greek currency gyrations and weird political gyrations. Since GeezerCasts are really just a chronicle of weird events for my unborn grandchildren, it looks like the pace may pick up.
Huh. Pretty short interval between Geezercasts here. But Marcie and I had a couple pretty interesting conversations on the Morning Walk and I thought I’d share them. One is about cyber-war and the other one is about how people are treated on reality TV shows. You’ll have to listen to hear how that all goes together.
